(i)         That public pay and display car parking be introduced 6pm to 8pm Monday to Friday; 8am to 8pm Saturday; and 9am to 5pm Sundays and Bank Holidays (with the same tariffs as Denne Rd car park).


(ii)        That the maximum stay be three hours.




(i)         The car park is currently a season ticket holder only car park; however surveys indicate that outside of the core working hours there is minimal use. Spaces would be available for public pay and display parking, thus fully utilising the car park.


(ii)        The location of Dukes Square car park is in a prime location for additional parking, especially on the side of town that has temporarily lost Piries Place car park.


(iii)       There is a potential for increasing parking income.
